John Deathriage-Walton Among 2 Killed in Modesto Crash on McHenry Avenue near Claribel Road

Modesto, California – John Deathriage-Walton, 27, of Ripon has been identified by the Stanislaus County Coroner’s Office as the driver who died along with his passenger in a traffic crash involving multiple vehicles at around 7 p.m. Tuesday, November 17.

According to authorities, a Nissan Altima driven by Deathriage-Walton was reportedly traveling north on McHenry Avenue when he failed to stop for a red light and collided with a Lexus SUV traveling west on Claribel Road.

Krystal Mobley, 34, of Modesto, was a passenger in the Nissan and died at the scene of the crash. 

Deathriage-Walton was rushed to a hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Authorities said the two occupants of the Nissan were not wearing their seatbelts and that Deathriage-Walton was ejected.

The driver of the Lexus, Huda Gubary, 46, of Salida, was taken to a hospital with major injuries.

After the crash, the Lexus hit a Kia sedan and a Dodge pickup waiting at a red light on southbound McHenry. The impact pushed the Dodge into a Toyota that was also stopped at the light.

No one was injured in that collision.

The crash is under investigation.

Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
